Public consultation on GDPR opens door for changes

GDPR EU flag

The European Commission closed its four-week consultation inviting stakeholders to share their views on how the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is working after six years.

Between Jan. 11 and Feb. 8, companies, privacy professionals, lawyers, and others were asked to provide their opinions regarding the privacy regulation and where it might be lacking.

The feedback from the consultation could result in tweaks to the rules and potential changes to the way data protection authorities (DPAs) enforce them, especially regarding cross-border cases under the “one-stop shop” mechanism. These—if any—would be adopted in the second quarter of this year.
